Dust & Corruption Calendar for April 2013

It's April...leaves are pushing out, flowers are starting to bloom, pollen is in the air, taxes are due. Sorry I'm dragging on this, folks. I've been sidetracked by work and family issues but am here to give a few things for some springtime fun.

As always, the Observatory in Brooklyn, NY, has a schedule of fascinating talks and workshops.

And Atlas Obscura always lists interesting things in different cities.

Saturdays: Speakeasy Saturdays continue at The Big Hunt; shows start at 9:00, and every Saturday is something different.
